Principal's Message

Dear Vista Families,


It is my honor and privilege to serve as the Principal of Vista Charter Middle School.  I began working here in 2011 as a 6th grade math and science teacher.  I quickly realized that this was a special place.  The family feel, the caring teachers and families, as well as teachers who truly cared for our students made this a place I felt at home.


At Vista, we truly believe in teaching the whole child.  We are committed to providing rigorous instruction and curriculum that prepares our students for high school and beyond.  Additionally we believe that to truly prepare students for life outside of Vista that we must reinforce our core values of Grit, Empath, Accountability, and Respect.  


I value learning and am constantly looking for ways to do so. My door is always open to parents, students, and staff.  I look forward to partnering with you and your family through these middle school years.


I am looking forward to serving you all,


Dan Sommer
